Grandma’s 95th Birthday Celebration πŸŽ‰

My family will be gathering for the 90th annual Smoot Family Reunion in Madison, WV soon.

While the fellowship amongst family since 1929 is a rich tradition, the milestone of my Grandma, Lucy L. Smoot, turning 95 is also worthy of a celebration.

Lucy L. Smoot

My Mom and Dad flew from Florida to show some love.

My parents were married in this house 53 years ago.

Although my family came from humble beginnings, there was always an abundance of love in this home constructed by my Grandpa, the late Boyd Smoot.

My Aunt Shelia recognized the sacrifices my Grandma made to care for her seven children with the reading of Proverbs 31:10-31.

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

My Grandma loves to share a story about me when I was around five years old:

She and my Mom had me hyped up to go shopping in downtown Madison, WV. I hopped out the car and looked around. I said, “This ain’t no damn downtown!”

Regardless of the rural setting, it was always a privilege to travel from Detroit to visit my grandparents.

Grandma kept it classy as the Birthday Queen for the weekend.

Gratitude is greater than regret…

Happy 95th Birthday, Grandma. We all love you! πŸ₯³
